Seriously, someone should drop him a line and suggest speaking to Tharg about doing something for 2000AD, if they haven't already...

or the other way round?
No doubt I'll be a grumpy killjoy Mr Negative...

if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

I'd sooner see him do Rogue Trooper. Those internal aspects of the character and his bio-chips would be apt for his style.

He'd be great for Rogue Trooper.

I preferred it the other way.

In responce to this topic's title:

Halo Jones ain't really suited for a two hour film, more for telly, if even. Rogue Trooper would be a better choice.

Hell! Make it a trilogy, I won't complain! :D

A Rogue Trooper movie would be equally cool.

It's not it's length, it's how it plays and paced which is episodic.

The two films he's helmed so far have been somewhat claustrophobic and with a clear psychological bent, and so it'd be interesting to know what he would pick, rather than what we think he should. Looking at Barney, I find it tricky to see a match when considering Moon and Source Code (not that Jones would necessarily want to make a film along similar thematic or atmospheric lines), but one story did spring to mind: Killing Time.

Actually with the cloning elements of MOON and the personality implant elements of SOURCE CODE you have the seeds of a Rogue Trooper film right there.

* I know RT isn't a clone but it doesn't take a massive leap of the imagination to connect to two.

Silo was quite claustrophobic but not particularly typical of 2000ad

It did rather wear its movie influences a little too openly. This worked fine in a comic strip but would need to be looked at before it could become a movie? Still one of Mark Millar's better offerings for the Galaxies Greatest.

I thought Rogue Trooper was a clone. In 'the war machine' he was a clone of the guy that owned the corporation.
